Lose Lose Situation

Posted by Victoria in Flying On An Angel's Wings, 08 February 2017 · 279 views

I read the recent responses from amp77 and want2babies and I was mortified by my reaction. I thought my tears were gone. I thought I was a stone to all that was happening on my journey to enlist the help of a surrogate I call Angel. But I cried. The pain to complete this journey grew stronger. The possibility of losing the partner I love to trade wit...

FET #1 Hello people! Okay so FET #1 from IVF #1 was a negative. I have nothing frozen left either 😑. What in the world is next for us!? We have two different plans as of now. We are not in agreement and it is very annoying.  Plan #1

I don't even know where to begin. I am pregnant. After four years of waiting for it to happen, our FET finally worked this time. I am 14 weeks as of yesterday. Supposed to be the happiest time of our lives.  
Two weeks ago today my mom passed away and I am lost. We were told in November that the radiation and chemo didn't work on her tumour and we we...

Husband and wife in Victoria,BC.
Wife's had 2 miscarriages in the last 19 years and had a full hysterectomy at the age of 45, we moved to canada 10 years ago to start a new life and family. This has now become a challenge, it's why we are thinking of now starting one with the help of a suurogate. Not knowing the next step, we are at a stand still.

Scheduled for our FET for July

Posted by Hoping&Praying in Praying & Hoping for Baby , 27 May 2016 · 819 views

Wednesday the 25th was my follow up appointment from additional testing after my last fresh transfer. The doctor said that everything looked beautiful and that he had no explanation as to why it didn't work out. I was originally concerned that I've started spotting a week before and until my period starts. He did mention that that could be a sign of endo,...

Just wanted to let u know they like to see 7 mm or higher for transfer but some ladies only get a 6 mm which is ok too. As long as thats the norm for you. But 7 or higher is the goal. Good Luck

Oftentimes, when you meet someone new, you have no way of knowing how important they will be in your life. 
Sometimes, when your world falls apart they are there to help you pick up the pieces and find the beauty of life again in spite of the bruises and scars - sometimes because of them. 
Thank you can't fully express your gratitude beyond the...

Still Echoing

Posted by DesignerBug in The Echo of Infertility, 24 February 2016 · 896 views

In 2003 when we decided "we'd chance" getting pregnant we would have never in a million years guessed what lay ahead. In fact, it's likely a good thing that we didn't know what was to come, as I'm pretty sure it would have been enough to just walk away without even trying.
 
The nearly 6 years it took us to conceive gave us a lot more than just...

...and still trying

Posted by Sweet_Insanity in Seeking more, 31 January 2016 · 1,038 views

Alright, I admit it. I fell hard with my second fresh IVF cycle. 
2015 was not my year.  
Back in December a week before Christmas, I get the news that I am pregnant but the number is too low and the pregnancy was a loss. 
I pushed everyone away. I was angry. I was sad. 
I stopped getting online. I stopped going anywhere. 
Quit ea...

IUI for over 35's can be successful!

Posted by abundant love in 5 Years of Tears, 30 December 2015 · 1,350 views
iui, over 35, iui success

IUI over 35 was a success for me
 
I've been meaning to write this for such a long time because I waited for such a long time to be able to do so. I am not even going to post the whole shebang because, really, my goal here is to inspire and encourage others, not write a novel.
 
I had a successful IUI at age 36 using donor sperm. It took 3 att...

Posted by Sweet_Insanity in Sweet_Insanity's Blog, 28 November 2015 · 1,032 views

So today/tonight is my trigger. 
Still waiting on the phone call that tells me what time. 
I'll be Triggering with HCG at 10,000. 
I am so uncomfortable and full feeling in my belly. I look like I'm 6mos pregnant or farther.  
My DH is scared I might get OHSS but I don't think so. 
So here's what happened past few days...

I've accepted he may be my one and only. Turning 30.

Posted by EMJRI in EmilyIrwin's Blog, 18 November 2015 · 1,188 views

Today - well tomorrow really... I'm only a few hours off... I turn 30! 
 
I haven't been on here in months, mainly because (tho cycling has been on my mind daily) we haven't actively been cycling or really trying. Coming back on here I decided to reread my old posts. Reading them made me tear up, the person I was 4 years ago, 3 years ago and eve...

Back here after a long ... but good time!

success, EPP

I was surprised to see that my last post was in November 2013! It was after my miscarriage and I remember I needed to vent and talk about how painful the process had been.
 
Although I stopped blogging, TTC didn't stop.  Some ladies here might have followed my story on some threads in the forums, but here I am again, feeling like I need to share...

[Donation] The end ...?

Posted by plusle in Plusle's Egg Donor Journey, 26 August 2015 · 1,322 views

My participation in my IPs' journey as a donor has officially ended. But has my role as a donor end here? Or does it end when she conceives, or when her baby is born, or when her baby grows up?  
I know that my responsibility do not end here. For exmaple, if I were to come down with some kind of illness that has a genetic component, it will be my dut...

waiting.....

Posted by hoping_praying86 in hoping_praying86's Blog, 02 July 2015 · 1,384 views

It is now 2dp5dt but it sure feels a lot longer than that. Trying to keep myself busy. Which is not all that difficult with my kids out on summer break this time.

Although the day just started, I feel OK. I have some minor cramping and nausea (which I'm sure is unrelated). Sometimes I wish I would have wrote down my symptoms I had prior to transfer. It...

Misfit

Posted by kookacola in kookacola's Blog, 18 June 2015 · 1,433 views

For the past few years, I've been feeling like I don't belong in my family.  Family I mean my mom, sister, cousins on my mother's side of the family.  My sister is an alcoholic, my mother's life is in shambles since she left her dh 6 years ago, and I found out recently that my family except my oldest cousin has been making cheap shots at dh....

Ready to share!

Posted by amazing grace in amazing grace's Blog, 10 June 2015 · 2,591 views

I am finally ready to share my story with all of you and the one thing I wish for is that all you gain some hope from my experience. I do not wish for pity but wish for the inspiration to move forward. After three miscarriages and a failed IVF, switching my American clinic and gaining new perspectives at a Toronto clinic, I finally conceived in March thro...

"When will I have grandchildren?" my mother asked

Posted by Anett Breczko in Before I Got Pregant - That 43 months, 10 May 2015 · 1,484 views

During the lunch, the TV was on. When I scooped out the soup, on the TV, they spoke on the news about subsidies for in vitro fertilization.
“When will I have grandchildren?”  my mother asked. She knew the month, when I had the last pill.
We didn’t have a good relationship, even at that time, but I told her about the bigger...
